A great budget recipe. Minced chicken (you could use pork too) with grated carrot, cilantro (coriander) and couscous. Perfect in a burger or with a salad or veggies. Serve with sauce of your choice, my kids like tomato/ketchup but I like sweet chili. These need at least 30 minutes refrigeration time.
